opportunity for americans. at a time when our deficit has been cut in half, it enables us to meet our obligations to future generations without a mountain of debt. this adheres to the spending principles members of both houses and both parties agreed to. it also builds on that progress with what we are calling an opportunity, growth, and security initiative, that invests in our economic priorities in a smart way that is fully paid for by making smart spending cuts and closing tax loopholes that right now only benefit the well-off and well-connected. i will give you an example. right now our tax system provides benefits to wealthy individuals who save, even after they have amassed multimillion dollar retirement accounts. by closing that loophole, we can help create jobs and grow the economy, and expand opportunity without adding a dime to the deficit. we know the country that wins the race for new technology will win the race for new jobs, so this budget creates 45 high-tech manufacturing hubs where businesses and universities will partner to turn groundbreaking research into new indus

[video clip] we have to decide if we're are going to make smart investments. our deficits are falling at the fastest rate in 60 years. we have to decide if we're going to keep squeezing the middle class or reduce deficits responsibly while taking steps strengthen the middle class. approach my budget offers. that is why i will fight for this year and in the years to come. talking about his $3.9 trillion budget. this is president obama's 2015 budget, it spends too much, borrows too much, and taxes too much. it re
with a deficit reduction plan similar to republicans', democrats', and the administration's. during that time, he reached across the aisle to try to make the supercommittee work, to help it meet its mandate. he offered a compromise that included spending cuts in exchange for tax revenue. unfortunately, his compromise and the other compromise discussed did not make it through. the committee, in a sense, failed to come to conclusion to propose to the senate and the house a compromise that could be lived. .. >> i want to welcome the senator from pennsylvania senator to me. >> toomey. >> excuse my voice it sounds worse than it is. think you for having me today and for his kind introduction and from universal health services it was allen's idea that i'd be invited to speak with you this morning and i appreciate that but i was a little surprised to be honest because allen knows about my notorious weaknesses with the public speaker and invited me any way. i say notorious for meet -- for be the department of public speaking made clear by only a smile -- of small child. i have three little kids into are n
on supporting the middle class then reducing the budget deficit through higher taxes for the bench. he's apparently during the midterm congressional elections in november. obama is calling for more works projects such as repairing roads and railways. he also aims to boost employment by introducing more vocational training. his proposals include tax cuts for lower income people and better pre school education. spending is set to slightly exceed three point nine trillion dollars while revenue is expected to increase to more than three point three trillion dollars as an economic recovery boost tax income. obama says the budget deficit will decline to five hundred sixty four billion dollars the lowest level in his presidency. we go to the side of the road you squeeze the middle class or for going to continue to reduce the deficit is responsible for all taking steps to grow and strengthen the middle class. republican house speaker john bain are strongly criticized the draft he said it was the most irresponsible. he said it would only increase spending and borrowing expanded governments and
spending in the future than was riginally projected. >> because they were projecting a deficit of 4% of g.d.p., how much does the health care calculations factor into that differential? >> the biggest difference is policy. you just quoted the c.b.o. number which assumes no policy. the president's policies would reduce the deficit by 1.8% of g.d.p. in the last year of the budget window. as a result obviously the deficit's a lot better with deficit reduction, which is what we are showing in our budget, than if you didn't have deficit reduction. which is what a budget baseline would show. there's some other technical differences between our outdear forecasts. they are mostly on the revenue ide not spending side. >> this is for anyone. do any of the participants know tax revisions vare frye from current law apart from the -- >> obviously we have a set of proposals in there, so one of he places where -- that's in our a -- assumed in our budget is that in the 2010 and 2012 budgets the president extended his increases for the refundibility in the child tax credit. the increases in the earned inc

's fiscal outlook. we have cut the deficit in half as a share of the economy, experiencing the fastest fury of deficit reduction since the demobilization of world war ii. the budget continues this progress. bringing deficits down to a share of the economy to 2% by 2023 and putting the debt on a declining path. we've seen a notable and significant decline in health care spending growth over the last few years, in part due to the affordable care act, we know that over the long run, the growth of the health care costs continues to be our nation's most pressing fiscal challenge. that is why the budget builds on the savings and reforms to health reform law with additional measures to strengthen medicare and medicaid and encourage high-quality and efficient health care. we also know that revenue has to be a part of the solution to our nation's long-term fiscal challenges. given the aging of our population and the declining ratio of workers to retirees, we will need additional revenue to maintain our commitment to seniors, while also making the investments that are needed to grow our economy and e

. no more bail outs and it will not add a dime to the deficit. 5.5 billion, and money to go to the insurance companies to make up for the fact that not enough young healthy people are applying for obama carry. only 25 percent of those are young and healthy. and marco rubio read the obama care bill and full health care law and found this provision, butied dope inside of obama care section 1342, is authorization for what is known for risk corridors. this means when companies lose money dow to not enough people signing up for obama care as has been the case so far, taxpayers get stuck for the bill. the administration is calling it a temporary poll of money. now, maybe if you believe that obama care wasn't going to cost a dime you buy that explanation. most of the time when the government sends money in companies tdoesn't get the money back. >> i was looking at a summery of the budget proposal yesterday, he conveniently leaves out a chunk of spending. 60 billion in tax credit to finance the private coverage of obama care. i mean, that adds to the the deficit, does it not. >> 60 billion by the wa
even further into record territory. >>> the treasury department says the country's budget deficit dropped to its lowest level in six years, during 2013. the federal deficit was $680 billion in the last fiscal year. that's down from about $1.1 trillion the previous year. cnn global economic analyst, managing editor of "time" magazine. so it's a dramatic -- about 15% drop in the deficit, which is still high, but a lot less than it used to be. what happened? >> well, in short, the country's growing again. we have been in a recovery for the last year. hasn't felt like one to a lot of people, but growing your way out of a deficit is always the best way to do it. that happened during the boom period of the clinton years, what a lot of people have been hoping would happen once we got past the fiscal headwinds in washington, that we get back on a growth path. what's interesting, though, there is actually a cbo study out looking at the longer term impact on budget deficits. and we have to keep growing faster in order to keep it down. we go back to a 2% economy, those numbers will tick righ
revenue and the deficit is the difference between what the government takes in and what it spends. many people confuse it with the debt which is what the government borrows to cover the deficit. an economic stock could be right around the corner. more on that coming up. and forget the fish that saved pittsburgh. we're going to tell you about the hockey arena that could save detroit. that and more as "real money" continues. >> the strength of the u.s. economy but the over all picture remains cloudy in part because of the weather. the biggest news was the revision to gross domestic product for the final three months of 2013. we'll learn more about that in a moment. but first, the contracts to buy homes edged up but less than economists expected, and is near a two-year low. as we reported the housing market has been hurt by this year's severe winter. we also learned that consumer sentiment rose slightly in february despite frigid temperatures and weak job growth in december and january. let's now talk about gdp. we learned that gdp slowed more than first thought after an impressive 4.1% ga
this bill would have increased the deficit. if you can run a deficit to go to war, you can run a deficit to take care of the people who fought in it. joining me is the chair of the senate committee on affairs, the senator from vermont. they said the multi-billion dollar bills face to make necessary reforms. what do you say to that? >> i say they're dead wrong and so does virtually every veterans organization in the country representing millions of veterans. chris, what i have learned since i've been chairman of the veterans committee is the cost of war is much deeper and more significant than i think most people know. we're talking about hundreds of thousands of young men and women coming back from iraq and afghanistan with ptsd and tbi. we're talking about 2,300 of you're soldiers who suffered wounds so that they're unable too have babies. we're talking in terms of older veterans, you have women, wives staying home taking care of disabled vets, 24 hours a day, seven days a week who get virtually no kinds of support from the federal government. you're talking about young people who were
. at the same time bush gave huge tax breaks to the wealthiest people in this country. ran up a huge deficit. then under obama the republicans come back. they say, gee, we have a terrible deficit. we're going to have to cut social security, medicare, medicaid, education, environmental protection. the needs of the kids' nutrition programs because of this deficit. so if you are asking me, do i this i that same set of policies will play out? more money for defense, then rising deficits and then cutbacks on programs that middle class and working families need? absolutely, that is what will happen. >> what is going to happen to these veterans, now, senator, if they're not going to get this kind of funding. there are a lot of veterans in this country that are being undercut, that are not being -- our obligation, we are not living up to our obligations because of war and budget cuts. so what does that say to the next generation thinking of a career in the military? >> that's a very important point. it says if we cannot keep faith with those people really hurting as a result of service to this count
convince the american people it would be different this time. >> i will. the worst budget deficit under george bush happened in his last term in office. that's when nancy pelosi was speaker of the house. budget ra $450 billion. president obama blew through those deficits. he had in excess of trillion dollar deficits year after year. what the republicans were able to do in the house is not continue that level of trajectory. has spending gone up? it absolutely has. but the level has slowed down and -- >> i get the feeling, congresswoman, maybe not you in particular, a lot of your party are giving up the fight and keeping the powder dry and hoping at the end of the year pick up more seats in the house and maybe take the senate and you bet you that will be the time when republicans get serious. but is that a lot to hang your hat on? >> well, what we need to hang our hat on is boosting the labor force participation rate. we're at the lowest level ever for anyone over age 16 actually having a job in the labor force and in a full-time capacity. that has to change. and unfortunately the preside
are going to make up anymore of this deficit, it is going to happen in the next four weeks. i am happy to report it will keep happening. the rim of high pressure is now way down -- ridge of high pressure is now way down south. i had to zoom the map out to show places in california. the high pressure has gone on spring break. allows storms to ride up over top of the ridge of high pressure right into northern california. the ridge is no long raploching the rhode island it is actually giving it -- longer blocking the rain. rain overnight. rain will be done by the drive you drive back to work tomorrow. staying unsettled. another low pressure area with the same storm track on thursday. another one coming up over the weekend. san rafael 66. fremont 64. mountain view 66 degrees tomorrow. check out the highs. they will be close to 70 even with cloudy conditions. another round of rain on thursday. the two nicest days to ghettoed will be friday and saturday up into the low 70ed with sunshine. for the second half of the weekend, here comes the third wave of rainfall with highs in the upper 60s. n
deficit has been cut in half. it allows us to meet our obligations to future generations. from the heard president, deficit picture is looking better. much so that levels will be below where they were before the budget crisis. >> how do republicans react to away from the emphasis on deficit reduction act out >? >> john baeder came out and said that this was the most irresponsible budget yet of the obama has proposed. the president laster put out an all french to republicans and said he was willing to make changes to social security, medicare and other entitlement programs. those are all gone this year. for republicans to look at these budgets in the lines of what the established last year in terms of topline numbers under the agreement, this budget is something that will not move in the house of republicans. are viewed asts more of political documents as opposed to policy proposals. >> that really is right. especially this year. yep midterms coming up in november. the white house wanted to lay out policy priorities going forward to follow through on over the next eight months. the presid
speaker john boehner, and if you look at the deficit, it's been cut by more than half in 2009, the fastest deficit decline over a sustained period since world war ii, so would you acknowledge some progress is being made? >> yeah, i think it's a great point. if you look at the numbers, looks like quite a bit of progress has been made and the deficit has come down very quickly. that, of course, comes after a large rampup in the deficit where it grew by 800% before those four years, and i think more troubling is if you look at the nation's debt, where our debt levels are twice as large as they've been historically and are at historic highs and that's where the trouble is. while we've done a lot of deficit reduction, we've done it in the wrong way. we've focused on, i think, inadvertently through congress not being able to pick our policies on short-term measures that came out of the budget, which isn't where the problem is. what we should be doing is trying to replace those savings that came from the sequester that aren't as useful or long-term with more permanent and structural changes to en
issue right now, deficit, debt, from the ministrations point of view, it is not something are focusing on right now. >> take you for setting the scene. -- thank you for setting the scene. york, our guest host, we have the chart of earlier. it is a massive victory lap. can we get back to a surplus? can we get back to that surplus? >> that is certainly not on the near-term horizon. what is important to note, three years ago the deficit was 10% of tdp and this year, 3%. it wasn't pretty. it didn't look like the civics textbooks, but we have a lot of deficit reduction. we had the ryan murphy agreement. it basically takes fiscal policy off the table for the next two years. barring a dramatic or election outcome in november, the administration will be status quo for 2017. >> are you willing to say austerity in the u.s. worked while austerity in europe did not work question mark -- work? able to register economic growth. it has been sluggish. europe has not been able to pull it off and a big impact of the fed he been the economy supported. >> the former fed governor, wonderful textbook, i don
could save. liberty mutual insurance. responsibility. what's your policy? >>> the federal deficit plunged by more than $400 in the last fiscal deficit. the sharpest drop since the end of world war ii. alison kosik is in new york to tell us why this happened. >> the federal budget deficit is at its lowest level in five years. the deficit is the difference between what the government spends and takes in. that dropped to $680 billion in 2013. to give you some perspective, during the financial crisis, it shot up above $1 trill in 2009 as the economy tanked and government bailouts became the norm. here is why it is happening. the economy is getting better over the last few years. the deficit has been shrinking. also, we are paying higher taxes. all that means more revenue for the government. the government has cut back on spending. the republicans, they still insist that the budget deficit is still too large. if they are looking for a fight, they may not get it. congress agreed to a bipartisan budget deal. mid-term elections are coming in the fall. a strengthening economy is removing m

when our deficit's been cut in half, it allows us to meet our obligations to future generations without leaving them a mountain of debt. >> woodruff: the 2015 deficit would decline, to $560 billion, but republicans today said the red ink, spending hikes and tax increases mean the plan is dead on arrival. senate minority leader mitch mcconnell. >> rather than put together a constructive blueprint the two parties could use as a jumping off point, to get our economy moving and our fiscal house in order, the president has once again opted for the political stunt for a budget that's more about firing up the base in an election year than about solving the nation's biggest and most persistent long-term challenges >> woodruff: congressman paul ryan, the house budget chair, likewise called the obama plan a disappointment. in a statement, he said: >> woodruff: ryan offered an extensive critique yesterday of federal anti-poverty efforts. he's expected to release a republican budget proposal in the coming weeks. >> woodruff: some of the more notable pieces of the president's proposal, and expected

don't see it happening. and i see a lot of this idea about how we're going to get deficits under control and in plans in time courtesy of tax hikes, but not a lot of spending cuts. >> well, a couple things. first of all, if you look at this budget, it shows the that the deficits are steadily decreasing, year by year. as you know, we've cut them in half over the last four years. and this budget puts the them on a continuing downward trajectory, number one. >> but they are still relying on tax hikes. $1 trillion worth over the next year. and i'm wondering, where are the savings? because the president and republicans, too, there were no fair players on this, they reversed what were going to be minor cost of living juchlgts in the last deal. they scrapped that altogether. writes the will for getting this under control? >> two things. i think if you look in the medicare area, the president's budget identifies some additional efficiencieefficienc that are saved, that are cut, not by harming beneficiaries, but by reducing and continue to reduce some of the overpayments to the private in

to that point they did not vote on the total budget, deficit or surplus if there was one. this is to get them to vote for a budget resolution one place, one time and then run for election on your vote. that stopped. they didn't want to vote for this, and there is no penalty for not voting in it. and then congress doesn't feel they have any obligation to pass one of its own. the process needs to be completely redone. it's not shown that anyone has the testicular fortitude to do it. >> the debt limit is not the place to be having a discussion wher of how you spend your money. this is interesting to me that conservative members of congress are having their cake and eating it, but at the same time not able to prioritize spending the way they would actually like. >> well, let's remember that the conservative members like liberal members can't make decisions unilaterally. i'm sure if the conservative s had the power with the hype seem to be zero. they probably have trouble getting the support with the reading of the lord's prayer these days. but when it comes to taxes and budget and taxes debt, it'
